Are there any other "cloaked figure with lighted eyes and black hands/forearms" characters/creatures/monsters out there?

While it does look pretty much alike, I gotta agree with GMH. The character design is generic enough that any sort of cloaked figured with scary eyes could be like Milon.

Like the little hooded guys from star wars? ;P

Generic as it may be, the resemblance is uncanny. Same colour, same pose, same creepy hands. Nice catch thumbup.gif

Well, it is kinda generic, but that as No-Name pointed out, that pose does have a lot of similarity with Milon's pose. I wouldn't be surprised if this (or a pretty similar-looking specific creature) was the inspiration for Milon's look.

I'm sure JRR would approve

If you play these games long enough, and pick them apart, you can learn a thing or two

Video games rot your brain indeed
